Yoga For Your Sign


Since delving more into astrology, I've been able to pinpoint and further understand certain characteristics about myself and those around me. As well as characteristics though, I've also learned how different signs apply to one of the four elements and certain body parts. For example, I'm a Taurus (Sun) which governs the neck and throat, and maybe explains why I used to hate people near my neck - why were people near my neck often enough for me to figure that out though?!?

Like yoga, I feel like astrology could be a great way to further understand ourselves, our bodies and our connection to the universe. So I've put the two together in this post on Yoga For Your Sign that'll benefit you in terms of your signs or that benefit anyone depending on, for example, what sign the sun or moon is in at the moment!
